    Ivan Reis draws one great Atom/Ray Palmer. I mean Ivan Reis draws a great...everything.

    Another good read. Very cinematic.

    True, but tieing into your theory in the Bendis thread, Rogol claims to have known Jor El. It's very likely then that he knew Zod as well.

    So the most curious occurrence here is what revelation it is Superman came to about Zaar right before Zod busted in. I didn't have many ideas till I saw Superlad's theory, ha.

    Pretty good issue but still had problems with it.

    Things I liked: Ivan Ries is still kicking butt. The art is amazing and a thrill to see.
    Even though it took a very long time to get going the last two issues actually started to move.
    Bringing in Zod is great. Really like how he is written. Three dimensional and the only character to take things seriously in this dramatic situation without acting all cutesy with the Bendis talk.
    Atom shrinking the earth is awesome and the scene where it grew back to normal size with Zod and Strange getting sucked in was cool.
    The line "What would Lois do?" from Clark. Shows how they respect and admire each other.
    And probably the best of all that scene where Superman is supposed to go full killer and see's his parents on the farm and is reminded who he really is. Very touching and well done.
    Also that cliffhanger was great. If Superman won't kick your ass then Zod will.

    What I didn't like: Probably already mentioned most of these above. The pace is still extremely slow.
    Rogol Zar is still very forgettable and uninteresting.
    Superman still not giving a crap. I know he had that moment where he saw his parents and calmed down but still his attitude and calmness when confronting Rogol at the end is very unnatural and way too calm. He should show some emotion or at least act like he's taking the situation seriously instead of "Hey, yo, Rogol whatsup man? Can I Like ask you a personal question man?"
    And last but definitely not least. The Bendis talk and cutesy attitude. It's very annoying and really takes you out of the story. If all the characters are not taking anything seriously why should I? Mostly it was done by the Atom and Atom Strange. It needs to stop. This treating everything like it's a joke and like super casual and like stuff. I feel like Zod was really the only one who was written not as a joke.

    All in all though I started off hating this but the last two issues have started to change my mind. Looking forward to seeing how this wraps up.

    I loved this issue. Bendis is doing an amazing job with all the characters, expecially Zod in this one.

    I thought the first Adam Strange appearance a few issues back was a great throw away joke. Unfortunately, Bendis forgot to throw it away.

    Lor is full kryptonian. Jon is kryptonian/human. So I'd imagine that might explain his "growth spurt."

    This continues to impress. And I really like how Bendis is using the super-intelligence aspect of Superman as well as how that interacts with his morality. Superman always holds back, guys.
